Hi, please let us know how we can improve your Search experience.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Yahoo! Search advertising is out of control

    Sure, I understand the need to generate revenue, but really?

    Just today I was interested in the history of Moville, Ireland. Since I was already at Yahoo!, I used Yahoo! Search. The results were a disaster.

    Search terms: moville ireland

    The first page returned 16 search results. Of those, 9 were for hotels (hint: If I'd wanted hotels, I would have included it in the search terms): Booking.com (4), Tripadvisor (4) and Agoda.com (1). The top two results, one each for Booking.com and Tripadvisor, were so expansive, I had to scroll down just to find the first (and only) useful…

        • Cannot find what I want when putting in web address listed on pkg.

          How about removing the salt in the pot pies? It would be easy for someone who wants it to add it when eating it. I do not see why almost all food has a lot of salt in the mix. Makes it difficult for someone who needs a low salt diet
          I would like to know why that is done. Please let me know.

          Thank you

              • Please allow us to dump fat celebrities from Yahoo News

                Please Please Please allow us to permanently block fat celebs like the mess Chrissy Metz. Most people find these thousand pounders unpleasant or unbearable to look at.

                  • you had Max Weismann's picture on the right side of screen with his history

                    Put back the picture with his hat. His Memorial Service is in May and it would be nice to have it there

                    • Get your stuff updated and keep it that way.

                      On the Yahoo page the "latest news" is at least one day and usually two days old. How can that be "Latest?" The section labeled "watch now" has not changed in over a year. There is a recipe for last years super bowl party. Get your stuff updated
